$325.00 Members
$355.00 Non-members

This class is well-suited for writers who have completed Intro to Personal Narrative and Memoir, are engaged in writing personal essays or memoir, and desire feedback on their ongoing projects. Readings each week will expand writers’ exposure to the broad field of personal essay and memoir with an emphasis on structure, voice, integrating research, and other aspects of artful nonfiction storytelling. Each class will consist of weekly reading discussions, in-class writing exercises, craft talks, and guided workshop by peers. Because each class is tailored to the needs of the group, assignments and topics will vary.
